SINGAPORE: A 69-year-old woman died in an accident involving two cars and a power-assisted bicycle along Cantonment Road towards Keppel Road early on Sunday morning (Jan 5).

The woman was the rider of the e-bike, according to police. She was pronounced dead at the scene by a paramedic. 

One of the drivers, a 25-year-old man, was arrested for dangerous driving causing death, police said.

The second driver had left the scene before the police arrived.
